Equality, Diversity and Inclusion


Our vision is to become Inclusive Sussex, where all members of our community have equal access to opportunities, experience the University as one that enables them to fully meet their potential, and supports them to make a full contribution to the University. Reducing inequalities and celebrating diversity allows us all to thrive.

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Unit

The Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Unit is responsible for promoting, co-ordinating and embedding equality, diversity and inclusion across the whole university community. The Unit is part of the Human Resources division and is managed by Isobel Pearce

The EDI Unit works closely with schools, divisions, staff networks and the University of Sussex Students' Union to deliver the University’s EDI strategy. It does not deal with individual cases of discrimination, which should be raised using the relevant procedures for staff and students. Our networks and support page gives details of individuals and teams who can provide assistance on particular issues.

You can contact the EDI Unit at edi.unit@sussex.ac.uk


We have provided some advice for staffincluding resources from national charities and organisations. You can also find details about coronavirus and completing an equality analysis
